Who doesn't love a good celebration? See Davies and Lavesque's right here!

DC United's striker Charlie Davies caused a big stir in the Twittersphere the other day, with a rather elaborate goal celebration.

The 26-year-old American forward had promised fans that if he scored in the game, which was played on his birthday, he would celebrate accordingly.

Davies hit a close-range finish to put the Black-And-Red 2-1 ahead against Houston Dynamo, and kept to his word!

See the video below at around 5:30':

Dan Steinberg at the Washington Post has attempted to explain Davies' antics in this hilarious article including freeze-frames.

Many football purists (or miserable old people as I prefer to call them) often criticise modern players for their over-the-top celebrations. But we love them.

Here's a few of MLSB's favourite celebrations of late, kicking off with Bolo Zenden's feeble efforts to join the Asamoah Gyan party:

Maybe MLS stars are now competing for the best performance? Roger Lavesque's scuba impression was almost as hilarious as the Red Bulls' goalkeeping:

And an honourary mention for Stjarnan FC, the Icelandic team who are fast becoming internet celebrities due to their unbelievable dance routines. Move over, Rebecca Black:
